Photos: Tapping for maple syrup
When people think of maple syrup, they most often think of Vermont. But maple syrup comes from other parts of the U.S.
Visitors to the Douglas-Hart Nature Center in Mattoon, Ill., got to see how maple trees are tapped and how to make their own spigots. Visitors were surprised that it takes 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup.
Meanwhile in Wisconsin, the forecast is for a better harvest than last year because the weather has been cooler.
